Sun storms…

leave a comment »

Astronomers are  on full alert to the sun resuming an active period after a decade of relative quiet.   NASA, well,  not so much.   But the solar storm will show what an EMF attack is capable of with respect to the highly technological Western world and its dependence on things electric.   And no,  we aren’t prepared for that either.

Did you know that sun spots  can compress or extend a day?

FOX got Helen’s seat…

leave a comment »

FOX News  got the seat because it routinely blows everyone else out of the water.   Somewhere at the White House,  His Oneness was  grinding his teeth,  and the Gibblet crying in his imported beer,  because it will not only be harder to ignore Major Garrett,  but the camera will have a better view when he asks one of those questions the Press Secretary absolutely hates and has no intention of actually,  you know,  ANSWERING!

UPDATE:   It’s too bad Major  Garrett is leaving FOX for the National Journal,  but he’ll be just as good a straight reporter in print as he has been on air,  and  Wendell Goler and Mike Emanuel will do fine at the White House.

True insurgents…

John Podhoretz has a great post on this week’s primary elections,  correctly identifying that some Republican candidates  — and winners —  are genuinely eager to  upend the political system.

The WaPo hasn’t  really figured it out yet.   Charles Hurt  has.

The bottom line is that Republicans should do very well this fall, but they’ll have to do even better to overcome the corruption put into the system,  as this Quin Hillyer  piece,  and its linked Reid Wilson column,  show.
